E71: how to block connecting through gsm internet

Hi all ,

i payed over 10 USD  through my SIM point's , for things i didn't want , it is really annoying , last time , i was connected through  the access point ,there was a website in the bookmarks , i click on it and browse it , then exit from it , and i got a message that i payed 2 $ for browzing it , another time i was cheking an application , and i got the same message . 

its really annoying me , i want to know how can i disable that service , i want to use my points for telephony and SMS only  please help me do that , and a list of what applications can use SIM points rather than Access point connection will be good.

 

regards 

H K

The sure fire way is to delete the Access Points. You could always set them up again if you need them in the future.

As CJLim says, you can remove the access points to prevent internet access, but you actually instigated the access by browsing to the bookmarked page. The phone cannot determine what credit on your SIM is used for, that is entirely down to your network provider.

I always have my phone set to always ask what connection point it should use. Its not quite as convenient as having it on auto but at least I get the option to use my WiFi connection point when at home without running up a data charge.

To set this, when in web browser, goto Options>Settings>General>Access Point. Set this to Always ask.

 

Please note that you could still accidentally connect using your mobile data connection connection, as I have often done when I am impatient and press the key too many times, thus selecting whichever Access Point comes up first. This also happens when someone else is using my phone.

 

Best way, if you absolutely do not want to ever connect using your mobile data connection is to delete the Access Point.

Im not sure how you would set it globally but as an example, if you launch the web browser and then go in to options/settings and in the Access point box just set that to Always ask. That way it will always ask what connection to use.

I do the same for my email.

 

Hope that helps.
